This Long Service Awards Luncheon took place in 1985 at the Ramada Airport Hotel. Those in attendance included E.M. Halliday, Mayor McCallion and Members of Council.
Hazel McCallion (born February 14, 1921) is mayor of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada's sixth largest city. She has held this office since 1978. She is affectionately called “Hurricane Hazel” by supporters as well as the media at large for her vibrant outspoken style of no-nonsense politics. She is one of Canada's best known and longest serving mayors. At the age of 85, she was easily re-elected in November 2006 for her 11th consecutive term, holding a 91% majority of the votes. Due to her popularity, she does not campaign during elections and refuses to accept political donations, instead asking her supporters to donate the money to charity.
